My boat is in the Med, so I've not experienced it from a boating point of view - so in that respect has it been too windy / wet / cold ?
Officially it is looking like the windiest year in over 20 years with only 8 days I think I read in the entire year being classed as calm so far. I.e less than 11 knots of wind I think is the official line.
I can only think of 1 day the temps have been in the 20's up here, it was a few weeks back.
Right now it is a fairly typical summer day up here for this year. Must be gusting in the 30mph range looking outside and chucking it down.
